Gintama: Sakata Gintoki

Friday, January 9th, 2009

gintama cosplay - sakata gintoki During the Joi War, Gintoki was renowned as the "White Devil" due to the fact that he has naturally permed, silver hair and always wears a white coat. He is so skilled in swordsmanship that he struck fear into the hearts of the Amanto.

Now that the war is over, however, he is stuck doing odd jobs, whatever that may be, for just about any price just so that he can pay his rent. He lives with Shimura Shinpachi, his apprentice, and Kagura, an alien from the Yato Clan.

Yes, I said alien.

Beautiful cosplay of Gintoki! The cosplayer’s captured his persona perfectly. I wonder who this cosplayer is? S/he looks a bit familiar…

Gintama: Yagyu Kyubei

Wednesday, December 10th, 2008

gintama cosplay - yagyu kyubeiAn aristocrat who was brought up as a male in order to succeed her family’s clan, Yagyu Kyubei dresses and acts like a boy but she has not forgotten her feminine self. Because of her upbringing, she was in love with Shimura Tae ("Otae" to most) when they were children. The lost of her left eye was actually a result of Kyubei trying to protect Tae.

The incident made Kyubei decide to become stronger. She is now a master of the Yagyu-Ryu sword technique and her strength is just below her grandfather’s.

Beautiful cosplay of Kyubei! I haven’t seen Gintama yet, but a lot of people seem to like this series… Maybe I should find the time to watch it. Oh, and this image was first found on Flickr! Thanks Ryan (蒼浩)!
